The initial inspiration for my work comes from my immediate surroundings, natural and man-made, places I have come to know well. My work is an emotional response to these places as well as the enjoyment and experimentation of my materials. I like the accidents that come from experimentation as much as the marks I ponder over for ages. My subject and materials via for top billing and only by working and reworking the image, experimenting with colour, texture, shapes & perspective do I find what is most interesting to me.
